Welcome back to another Topic of Light. This week I was inspired to write about the negative spiral and webs we get caught in sometimes. This does link back to last week's post about keeping hope and finding your light in the darkness.
Have you ever been a good place and then one thing happens after the next subtly and all of a sudden you are in a whirl pool of negativity. We get so caught up in life that we don't even realise we ended up in a negative spiral pool until its too late. If you are like me, I get down because I have become like that after I figure out I am stuck in a spiral, I feel like I let myself down, yet continue to complain and moan! You almost don't see how to change where you are. Sound familiar?
So the next question is: How do you get back to that good place?
It starts with one step. Start with your next action / reaction / words. Then the next and the next after that. Just take it one step at a time back towards the light. Find your little bit of hope, even if its the smallest shred. Give yourself a comlpliment, chose not to spread that story & move onto a happier topic. Push that complaint out of your head or put it in a bubble and blow it away. Say something genuine and nice to someone that makes them smile.
We tell people our complaints because we feel the need for validation & understanding. Just like the saying goes, misery loves company. Telling a negative story only harms you. Pain shared is pain halved, but happiness shared is happiness doubled.
Your words you speak, is your own magic. The more negative stuff you say, the more negative stuff you attract and visa verse. Gossip is a big one! That is like toxic sludge.
Don't feel bad and beat yourself up when you find yourself at the bottom, in a dip or slipping up. Stand up, dust yourself off, learn where you went wrong (To help you grow and not land up here again hopefully) and move on. You can do it. You can chose, you always have a choice. You are a beautiful light and being worthy of love and second chances.
My wish for you this week is to find you shred of hope, forgive yourself and move on to happier and greener pastures.
